The Locally Delicious organization, now a small non-profit, re-directs proceeds from the book back into the community through grants. Funding has gone to many sustainable foods community projects related to education, small business development, and food access issues.
The book[edit | edit source]
Locally Delicious: Recipes and Resources for Eating on the North Coast is a cookbook and resource guide to local foods, supporting the re-localization of the Northern California, Six Rivers Region food system. This book was published to much fanfare in 2009 (ISBN 978-0-615-31507-2). For more information, visit Locally Delicious, the book.
Lunchbox Envy[edit | edit source]
Students in Introduction to Design (Engr215), at Cal Poly Humboldt, worked with Locally Delicious to design, build, test and disseminate projects that support healthy lifestyles among youths grades 4th through 6th and their families. Building on the success of Locally Delicious' last cook book, they are creating a new cookbook, named Lunchbox Envy, created with and for youth, families and schools across the United States. The cookbook will be replete with supporting projects, such as the ones below.
